LAFF update

The Los Angeles Film Festival ended yesterday, and I managed to catch a handful of films despite my beleaguered schedule the past few weeks, which I hope is settling down. Look for some posts the next few days summarizing my viewing, including my two favorite LAFF films, Philippe Ramos’ Captain Ahab and Lance Hammer’s Ballast.

  1. Congratulations, Doug, on the recent rehaul here at Film Journey. Looks good. Has all past commentary been lost, however?

    I especially look forward to hearing your comments on Ballast, which I very much appreciated when it screened at our San Francisco International. I also had the welcome opportunity to talk to Hammer for SF360, though I don’t imagine that will go up until the film is theatrically released next year.

  2. No, I still have the text of the commentary, so in a worst case scenario, I can simply create a new page with links…but I still have hopes that my tech support people will come through.

    Ballast was pretty great; I’m looking forward to your interview. (Incidentally, I also saw Lucian Pintilie’s Romanian classic Reenactment over the weekend, so I really appreciate your transcript of its introduction when it was shown at PSIFF. I’ll be sure to link.)
